From the Paper:

"Few films have been as influential as Don Siegel's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1956). The formula created by Siegel has been copied and imitated hundreds if not thousands of times over the years. In fact, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1956) inspired two remakes, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" (1979) directed by Philip Kaufman and "Body Snatchers" (1994) by Abel Ferrara. The fact that "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" has been made and remade so many times leads to the question of, which of the films is best? This question is complicated by the fact that each of the films is essentially a different story and a different type of film."
